Project: "Developing multi-stakeholder cooperation in the areas of water, waste and energy efficiency in Belarus"

WECF and Ecoproject are implementing a common project with overall aim to raise awareness amongst NGOs, local authorities and citizens as well as businesses on sustainable development in their communities in Belarus. The duration of the project is 3 years. In the first phase the project will build capacity of different stakeholders. We will promote tools for multi-stakeholder participatory cooperation and partnerships for sustainable development in the areas of water, sanitation, solid waste and energy. In the second phase the project will also initiate participatory processes around the implementation of local demonstration/pilot projects related to the issues of water, sanitation, solid waste and energy.

Why Is Climate Warming Up?

In our ongoing effort to raise awareness on global warming and help to change behaviour of various society groups in Belarus to prevent Climate Change, we have initiated preparation of new educational material to explain the causes and consequences of Climate Change, and to give simple ideas that each of us can implement in our daily lives to prevent global warming. The brochure "Why Is Climate Warming Up?" has been prepared with help of educational experts and has proven to be very useful and effective during the dissemination lessons and seminars.
